In Istanbul, a jazz trumpeter pulls the murdered body of a young woman from the surf. He remembers her from the night before, when he saw her at a millionaire playboy's party and then later watched as she was assaulted by the party's host and two of his friends. In confusion, Jimmy, the musician, leaves for Rio where he finds the sympathetic ear of Rita, a singer who invites him to live with her and helps him recover his equilibrium and his musical ability. Then, into the room walks a woman who looks like Wanda, the murder victim. Jimmy pursues her, not caring if she's alive or dead. What's going on? Written by

The film was originally inspired to director Jess Franco
by a conversation with jazz artist Chet Baker
. Franco at first conceived the film as a bi-racial love story, but the distributors felt the idea wouldn't wash with audiences of the time so the story was re-written as a surreal thriller. See more
